To Lacey: Even if all the church buildings were to be shut down the spirit of Christ would live on. Russia and China has been a good example of this.

Are morals really important? Who is going to teach them when all the Churches are shut down?

To Ernestine: When Jesus was on the cross he told one of the other guys on a cross next to him that he would join him in paradise, today and all through the Bible it speaks of people going to heaven before the rapture. What I don't understand is - Jesus told the dude he would join him in paradise today but then when Jesus died he didn't go straight to heaven according to my understanding of the scriptures.Why was it that only Luke mentioned this dialog.

When I die to I go to heaven right away or lay in the grave till the rapture?

To Clevis:All things work together for those who love God. The edition of the Bible you read, the ministry you hear, the message you receive is not by chance but God delivered. The meaning you hear today is for today, the meaning you hear tomorrow is for tomorrow. Fortune cookies may be ambiguous and wise but have no means of salvation or relation to God.

If the Bible is the word of God why didn't he write it so it could be clearly understood by everyone? Take any verse, ask three different preachers and you'll get three different meanings. Who's right? Is the Bible like a Chinese fortune cookie?

To Fuzzy: Burn me once, shame on you. Burn me twice, shame on me.

It seems my greatest downfall in life has been in trusting people who claim to be Christians but later ending up burning me in one way or another. I don't want to become cynical of all people but also don't want to be gullible just because someone claims to be a Christian. What's the right thing to do?

To Scooter: O.C.D.addictions of any kind are tough but chemical addictions are some of the toughest to divorce. Three suggestions are - get professional help, change your environment, and most important convince yourself that prayer really works. If you will make prayer real in your life whatever the challenges are; the Lord will provide a way to cope if not conquer.

I have an addiction to nicotine that I can't seem to break. I've tried pleading, praying, and promising to God to overcome this but just can't seem to beat it. Like any addiction, it doesn't satisfy but rather perpetuates more and more self abuse. What am I doing wrong that God won't take this burden from me?

To Dutch: When Christ states in the Bible we are to follow him, he was referring to his spiritual obedience to God not to his physical activities. Christ rode on a donkey, he traveled from town to town, he died on a cross for your sins. These are not things you should or could do as a lifestyle.
11-20-2012 3:20:15 AM CST
It is taught we should strive to be like Christ, right? Christ had no wife, no children, no lover; how long would the human race last if all mankind were to follow that lifestyle?

To Wrangler: Sounds like you are suffering the misery like the quasi-demigods of government. There is nothing hard about loving God. If you were not so spiritually blind you would see his love all around you. You cannot force anyone to love you nor will God. The choice is yours. Yes, many people are spiritually bankrupt these days and soon they will be brought to their knees praying for God's relief.

If God wants everybody to love him why does he make it so hard? If I love someone I will do everything I can to get that person to also love me. Why doesn't God also try to get people to love him? More and more people are turning their backs on God and he doesn't seem to be doing anything about it. So where's the love?

To Bullwinkle: If EVERY person born was homosexual how long would it take before the human race would be gone? Men can't get men pregnant and women can't get women pregnant. This would be a sin according to the Bible.
11-12-2012 10:58:34 PM CST
I'm not sure I understand your answer. What would be wrong if every person born was homosexual?
11-12-2012 8:31:01 AM CST
To Bullwinkle: To determine if any issue is a sin or not is quite easy. All one has to do is ask and answer the question - What if EVERY human born was that way? The same is true for abortion. What if every woman who got pregnant had an abortion? Would that serve God's purpose for mankind? As stated on the front page of this website we do not condemn anyone for anything they may have done or currently doing. We just want to promote personal prayerful relationships with God through Christ. All humans have issues and through prayer and the revelation of God's word each person will know their personal sins and hopefully seek repentance.

Okay Solo, so what's your take on the Gay Christian issue? I was reading the Heartland Proclamation and it states there is no reference in the Bible against it. Are you an exclusionist or tolerating Christian?

To Bebee: He was a backstreet philosopher that Alexander the Great revered more than his own staff.

Who was Diogenes of Sinope?

To Road Horse: You should be glad you're not perfect. If you always did the right thing, you would probably get that "Greater than thou" attitude that people dislike. Somewhere in the Bible it states we should be assertive but humble.
11-03-2012 3:01:15 AM CST
To always do the right thing, this has been my prayer, my unanswered prayer, why?

To Buzzy: The Socialists seem to think so. I do support having a safety net for when a person temporarily falls on hard times or has a verifiable disability. I do not support welfare programs that compete with employment wages.
10-29-2012 9:05:43 AM CST
Should the self-controlled working people have to support the reckless ignorant lazy bums of the world?

To Big Mac: When you have sex without loving, it is called pornographic sex. The Lord considers this type of sex a sin. As you know, the wages of sin is death. No, your not going to fall over dead but the ability to make love in a sexual manner with the one you do love, now or in the future, will die. Is this what you want? Loving without sexual intimacy is something you should do with all God's children.
